Nature Center. Most of the exhibits and aisles in the Nature Center are generally accessible. However, the insect displays lack adequate aisle space and somewhat hinder the approch to wall exhibits behind them. Route of travel from the parking area to the center is accessible but assistance may be needed with a slightly high entry threshold. It is 350 feet from parking to the Nature Center, so drop-offs may be advisable for those with mobility issues.
